11 Waterloo Road
L.pool [Liverpool?] March 31, 1847

Dear William,
I am now compelled to shut
up against any from your quarter coming
forward for Quebec for the ship "John Bolton"
she is at present overbooked by a large
number - Therefore please caution your
people not to come forward till [until?] toward
the 12th April, when another Large ship
will be ready to take them on same terms,
although tis much harder on me.
Indeed such is the pressure unless
I can be furnished with names of those who
can be relied on as certain to come+ +Early there
will be no certainty of securing accommoda
-tion [accommodation?] during the month of April.
I risked keeping open Berths for 70
adults and finding no tidings from your quarter
this morning without any difficulty or
loss I have got the number squared up -
Please don't delay your
communication on this subject if practicable
Yours most truly
Thos [Thomas?] Elliott

Please excuse Hasty Letterwriting
these times don't afford
time for serious Epistles

Mr W. G. Smith
